On the eve of D-Day, American paratroopers are dropped behind enemy lines to carry out a mission crucial to the invasion’s success. But as they approach their target, they begin to realize there is more going on in this Nazi-occupied village than a simple military operation. They find themselves fighting against supernatural forces, part of a Nazi experiment.

I feel like I’m the last to the party when it comes to Overlord. Here we have a movie that combines a couple different things in order to get you a unique experience with high tension from start to finish. We start off during World War II with a group of soldiers heading into heavy fire planning to jump out of the plane and carry out a mission. When that goes wrong, we get very tense war-related stuff until certain things lead up to other stuff coming into play and that’s where we then hit our horror and sci-fi portion of the movie. The stuff in this one gets very brutal and violent at times and every once in a while we get some comedic breaks sprinkled on top, which is a good thing in my opinion. It all comes together to make Overlord one of the better efforts from last year and one I’m sure will be able to be enjoyed by many movie watchers, not just typical horror ones.

The movie has some CGI but it isn’t bad looking CGI. There’s plenty of other gory and bloody moments to keep any gore fan happy while watching. We also have a lot of good characters and acting performances keeping things steady as this one plays out. I’m a reviewer that always complains and moans about pacing in movies but this is one movie that gets that right and I’m very happy that it does. Add in some nice extras on the Blu-ray disc and a great looking film here on the 4K and Overlord is a movie that I totally suggest everyone reading this go and watch if you haven’t yet.
